Yes to People. Yes to Housing.


Learn about the pro-housing movement and how you can make housing more affordable near you!

We are fighting for housing in Hawaiʻi all kamaʻāina can afford.

Hawaiʻi has the highest cost of living in the nation because we've said “Not In My Backyard” (NIMBY) to building adequate housing supply.

The result: thousands of locals are pushed out to the mainland or into homelessness every year, while Hawaiʻi slides toward becoming an exclusive playground of wealthy property owners. We refuse to allow that to happen - and we refuse to compromise on ensuring that we preserve our environment and retain strong tenant protections along the way.

We say “Yes In My Backyard” (YIMBY) to affordable, sustainable, and inclusive housing for all.
